to these questions. >> i think you picked up quite rightly the question of the degree to which the united states wants to lead it was seen as a subset of fact, wants to spend the resources that it takes to lead. so you hear this doubt and president obama's own words each time he was gone to give a major speech on afghanistan, the west point speech on the command of the company pulled tight again during presidential debates. he kept saying it's time for nationbuilding at home. what was that tapping into? that was tapping into an emotion you hear the electorate can see in the polls. i'm not saying it's a good thing or bad thing, but americans feel as if we are overinvested abroad. then you look at events to which we feel we are the in the united states, that things are out of control, there isn't enough american power and you have become that much to that, which as any to stay invested as we were in that golden. you just describe between 89 and 99, which is a great unipolar moment. the message you hear from the obama administration is that moment is that coming back again. you have to pick your fi

the state department's chief economist and a former obama administration adviser on the auto bailout. this forum hosted by the world affairs councils of america, runs a little under an hour. >> thank you very much for that introduction. lori said to me that since we started a bit late, provided it's okay with her speakers we will run a little bit late, maybe five or 10 after 2:00. i'm going to ask them questions for about 40 minutes and then throw the floor open to you, so get your notebooks out in your questions and you can grill them in a moment. before starting, lori asked me to set set the frame a little bit and to talk just for a moment about u.s. competitiveness in the u.s. economy in a global context and there actually was an oecd report they came that came out this morning that does that admirably. this report submits that within four years, by 2016, the chinese economy will be bigger than the u.s. economy, and what the oecd report sort of further says, it's a great reporting appearances to take a look on line. today, the u.s. economy is accounting for 23% of the world's econ
previously. that's something that is of great concern to countries like the united states that view iran's nuclear activities with very deep suspicion, don. >> absolutely. speaking of the united states, the u.s. president barack obama said this week that he believed there was a, quote, window of time to peacefully resolve this with iran. but what are the implications now, matthew? >> well, i mean, the implications are that if iran were to make use of its new increased capacity to make nuclear material for weapons, and it hasn't said that it will do this, it said quite the opposite, in fact, that would mean that we have an opportunity that president obama was talking about would get narrower. at the moment, though, i think it is important to point out that iran is still staying well clear of the sort of line in the sand, the red line, that it would cross to provoke any kind of military response. it still doesn't have the kind of nuclear material or indeed the other technologies necessary to build a nuclear weapon, at least not for some significant time in the future, don. >> matthew chanc
this fight put president obama in? >> well, look, president obama's larger foreign policy goal is to both secure a peace deal in the region but also improve the united states' relations with the islamic world. and the fact that you have this new government, after the arab spring, which has been the administration has seen as a success overthrowing autocrats who have been somewhat friendly like hosni mubarak, you have egypt embracing hamas, putting the united states at odds with its ally in the region israel, it makes it difficult. so every statement that we've seen from the white house about his consultations whether it's with mohamed mursi from egypt or benjamin netanyahu has the word, as you just mentioned, deescalate. they want this to be tamped down, and it is probably in israel's interest to do that, to avoid further inflaming the region. but, hamas seems to think that they would benefit from prolonging and es cal eighting the conflict. >> okay. >> i want to get your take on former cia director david petraeus appearing before the house and senate intelligence committee. it seems each
of louisiana, the new chair of the republican governors association, in his state capital of baton rouge. from san diego, wisconsin, governor walker, the new vice chair of the rga. he attributed the defeat to president obama giving out jindal reacted sharply to that. take a look. >> given extraordinary financial gifts from the government. >> i reject that. we have to stop being the stupid party. we have to stop making stupid comments. >> chris: so what was stupid about what romney said? >> i am proud of the campaign across the country but i reject what he said. >> you don't have to insult people, we are ans spir rationable party. let democrat say degrok rafy is destiny and we'll divide people by race and gender and class. this is not just a marketing campaign. >> chris: governor walker take look at the exit poll from election night. 43% said romney. how do republicans convince the middle class you are looking out for them? >> we see them in governorship. you have 30 states with republican governors. there is a trust factor there. we need to be a party that talk about it and we need to take the
states, the u.s. has also been targeting al qaeda. and in fact in december of 2009 the obama administration opened their campaign of bombing attacks against what they believed to be al qaeda targets in yemen. so on december 14, 2009, this is about -- obviously about 11 days before the christmas day attack, secretary of state clinton added al qaeda in the arabian peninsula to the terrorist list, named them an official terrorist organization, and then three days later the u.s. carried out its first attack. so it was in southern yemen and ibrahim mentioned this in his remarks. it was on a village and what the u.s. thought was that there was an al qaeda training camp and they knew some of the operatives who were there and so they had u.s. naval ships off the coast of yemen that fired missiles equipped with cluster bombs into what they believed to be a al qaeda training camp. unfortunately for the u.s., this turned out to be a bedouin village in which several or a few al qaeda members were hiding. there were 55 casualties during the first round i have a tax. so this happened sort
obama in my country and in my house. >> reporter: with him, secretary of state hillary clinton. he said, this is their last official trip together as she plans to leave the state department. >> i could not be more grateful, not only for your service, hillary, but also for the powerful message that you and a aung san suu kyi send. >> reporter: in cambodia, president obama was there for two summits on the focus of trade. very early tuesday morning, cambodia time, president obama spoke with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and got an update on the situation. he also called egypt's president morsi and according to the white house n that call, the president discussed with morsi the importance of getting hamas to stop firing rockets into israel. the president has publicly said he believes this is essential for stability and to get a piece in process. from here, the president will have a partial day of summits in cambodia, mostly focused on trade issues, before flying home in time for thanksgiving. joe? >> that's jessica yellin reporting. now we're going to continue the special editio
obama's foreign policies ahead. he will have to deal with an entirely new team. he came in and put hillary clinton as secretary of state, inherited bob gates and inherited gen. petraeus and put him afghanistan and cia and now he has to fill those positions and see who can help him deal with these challenges. >> bob, as one who has more than a passing acquaintance with scandals, where do you think the so-called libya scandal is now? >> i think there are serious unanswered questions but the suggestion they should have watergate style, independent special committees to investigate this, i don't see that yet because the question seems to be what did susan rice know and when did she know it? which falls not very high on the scale of do we really need to get to the bottom of this? i kind of disagree with chuck. i think we will find out what happened and i think we should. and you never know what this is going to show. but the real issue is libyan policy. you know, what are we going to do with this country that -- we don't know what the future is. and a light footprint might be the answer
over the weekend was thailand and late last night, president obama became the first bt to ever visit mee you mar. he met with the national league of democracy there along with secretary of state hilary clinton. he spoke with the president and said his trip is not an endorsement of the new government, which is in the middle of a transition to democracy, but he did praise the country for shaking off its military rule and press the government for more reform. obviously we're having a little bit of technical problems, but the president said the steps the president has taken for release of the prisoners and his commitment to work with the u.s. on human rights dialogue will unlease the incredible potential of that beautiful country. this is obama's first trip overseas since his reelection shows he is serious about shifting america's focus leastward. the two are continuing to fire rockets and israel has blamed hamas for does sends of arrests since the violence started. more "bill press show" after the break. we'll be right back. here in our own country. >> it's an iss
. and it was litigated on the tax issue and on the tax issue obama won the argument. moving into the fiscal cliff situation, he has a strong hand. the public is with him. >> bill: right. 49% say states should legally recognize same-sex marriages. >> of course, you saw big wins in maryland, defeated in minnesota. so moving forward -- maine -- so moving forward. that's the first time that you saw -- put it to a popular vote. those issues go forward. the numbers nationally are still divided but again i think a pivotal moment and those numbers again with the demographics will only grow and grow and grow. >> bill: on immigration reform, which i found interesting, of course, the difference is president obama had a comprehensive immigration reform package. mitt romney said people should self-deport. 65% of americans in this -- a week ago today said most illegal immigrants should be offered a chance to apply for citizenship. not sent back to mexico or wherever. >> you saw right after the election, prominent republicans come out and say okay, w
. the various agencies, who state department, justice department before going out to lawmakers. gregg? >> gregg: molly henneberg in washington. thanks. >> heather: president obama now in germany during a brief stop on his way to southeast asia. deputy national security advisor ben rhodes says that working with that region will be a critical part of the president's second term and ultimately his foreign policy legacy. president obama will first arrive in tie land before moving on to cambodia and then on monday, he will actually make history by becoming the first sitting u.s. president to visit burma. >> gregg: extremely tight election is now over in the state of arizona. democrat ron barber won a full term representing the state's second congressional district. vote increase a special election picked him to finish out the remainder of gabrielle giffords' term. but last week's election, so very tight, took until today to declare a clear winner. >> heather: the tsa confirming to fox news a troubling weakness in our nation's airport security and if exploited, it could make it easier for passengers
zelig. austin goolsbee, former chairman of the council of economic investors under president obama, and michael boskin, who spoke last night as chief economic advisor for george h. w. bush. we have a whole world to spend. i want to start out with the united states. very few people in this room understand the president as well as us. many are asking -- what is going to come? i would like to look through the fiscal cliff and ask you to describe for us how you see the budget negotiations playing out over the next six months. >> it feels to me like they always had a deal last year. the principal bottleneck was not that the president was on willing to offer cuts. it was that there was a group of republicans in the house who would not go for the revenue. i think that is still the bottle neck now. you probably saw the article this morning from hubbard. i take from this collection some optimism of 2013 and the way that might play out, whether we go or do not go over the fiscal cliff, we get to some space where if they did $1 trillion in cuts and reforms it was $1 trillion on discretionary,
susan rice forward to be secretary of state. megyn: he said if i want to nominate her, i will. president obama scheduled to meet with business leaders. busy day at the white house, to talk about budget cuts and tax hikes. it's part of his plan to help avoid the fiscal cliff. but we got reports on two different studies, one by ernst and young and the conscious at budget office that predicted raising tax rates even on the wealthy will hurt the economy. charles payne and simon constable. author of the the "wall street journal" guide to the 50 economic indicators that matter. charlesing with who put that together, a bunch of rich people who don't want to get taxed? >> realistically. i think the question is, a lot of people will resign themselves to the fact that taxes will go up. but the question is how do you define rich. this is where i have a problem. $250,000 is not real definition of rich and that's not where the average american family who gets to that point should be punished for the work they put in. the president continues to dismiss small businesses saying only 3% are going to be h

[laughter] [laughter] we have our own gavel. we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have a gavel. we do not have the majority. but we have unity. i think that our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so i come here with my sisters. when i came to congress 25 years ago, there was about 23 members of congress who women out of 435. just think about that. twelve democrats and 11 republicans, something like that. today, we have over 60 house democr

and a path to citizenship for immigrants already in the united states. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is with us from d.c. jessica, is the obama administration saying anything about the graham and schumer plan as it starts to formulate here? >> hey, ted. they haven't commented on the plan so far this week, but graham and schumer are re-engaging on a proposal that those two senators first outlined in march of 2010, and the white house supported that r proposal then. that proposal has four specific components, not just tightening the bord, but the key component is a biometrics social security card so only those here legally can be hired. that is sort of can considered the key linchpin that could get a lot of republicans on board. also a path to legalization, a process for admitting temporary workers. it sort of is considered a framework for a comprehensive plan that the white house said they very much would like to get done for the president in the second term. >> what about the timing? why now? why is this being brought up after the election? there is exit polling that s
